    2) Read at least one chapter of a book for fun each day.
    3) Go on a drive once a week. Have no particular destination other than a stop for iced tea. Put on music and see where you end up.
    4) Listen to a record straight through without doing anything else. Sometimes music needs your full attention.
    5) Doodle. Who cares how shitty of an artist you are? Give it a shot. Create.
    6) Go to coffee shops. There’s a million in the city. Get out of the house for a while.
    7) Ask a friend to go to dinner. Simply as friends and for no particular reason. Pick up the bill.
    8) Allow yourself to fall in love. Let things happen. See where it goes. Take the risk."

    I know most people who like Alcibiades do so either because of his role in Plato’s Symposium or his magnificent bastardry during the Peloponnesian War, but I fell in love with him reading Plutarch’s account of his character and feel wretched.

    Why doesn’t Tumblr talk more about Alcibiades?

    No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

    We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.
